Chapter 1785: Killing Wu Qiong
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Terrifying Blood Qi stained the air in a kilometer radius from the massive Blood Cloud that floated in the air.
“Ha ha ha! Su Mo, you decided to die!”
Wu Qiong’s mad laughter roared from the Blood Cloud while the 4 other godly talents exchanged blank looks as they stood in front of the Blood Cloud.
They didn’t know whether or not to act in such a scenario.
Wu Qiong definitely wanted to kill Su Mo because of the deep hatred between his tribe and Su Mo. But if they allowed Wu Qiong to kill Su Mo, he might advance to the Rank 9 Martial Honorable Realm and that would spell trouble for them.
Just as the 4 people were confused, a blood-curdling scream from Wu Qiong suddenly emerged from the Blood Cloud.
“How could this be?”
Disbelief filled Wu Qiong’s scream and it instantly shocked and confused the 4 godly talents even further.
Within the Blood Cloud, Wu Qiong was shrouded by a thick layer of Blood Qi. His heart leapt for joy initially as he thought that he would definitely win.
However, within the next moment, the Blood Cloud suddenly sucked towards Su Mo uncontrollably.
Not only that, a strong devouring power enveloped his body. He continuously tried to activate his Blood Spirit Body but Blood Qi spiraled towards Su Mo madly, confusing and shocking him.
Su Mo’s face remained cold. He had activated the Devouring Fighting Soul the moment he entered the Blood Cloud. Devouring force rolled out of him and crazily devoured the Blood Cloud.
The Blood Cloud rapidly decreased in size under Su Mo’s devouring.
At the same time, bright light flashed in Su Mo’s hands and he pocketed the stone sword that had already been cracked.
In the next instant, a mass of insects appeared in front of Su Mo. There were more than a few thousand such insects and the majority of them were silver-colored insects.
However among these few thousand insects were 29 purplish-gold insects, 8 more than there were before.
In the blink of an eye, the few thousand insects amassed to form a large, 10,000 feet long sword. Purplish-gold rays of light reflected off the insects’ exoskeletons, giving off a sinister and dark vibe.
Su Mo held the winged insect sword in his hands as Sword Force surged out of it. Gripping the winged insect sword tightly, he swung it against Wu Qiong, who was wrapped in Blood Radiance.
“Empty Space Attack!”
As the sword swung through the air, the empty space tore apart and the Blood Cloud shook violently. Dazzling chaotic Sword Qi added a further layer of killing intent to the sword.
Since the Blood Cloud was only a few dozen meters wide and Su Mo and Wu Qiong were close together, the Sword Qi reached Wu Qiong within a second.
“Not good!” Wu Qiong desperately tried to control the Blood Force and stabilize the Blood Qi surging in his body as his heart leapt in fright.
At that point, the Blood Cloud was out of control and he had no strength to confront Su Mo at all. Without hesitation, his body flashed and he avoided the attack.
Thankfully, his cultivation rank was higher than Su Mo’s and hence the devouring power did not slow him down too much, allowing him to just barely avoid the sword strike.
With that, Wu Qiong did not remain in the Blood Cloud further and quickly escaped it.
However, at the same time, a Glazed Pagoda shot in front of him and suddenly extended to become as big as a mountain. In an instant, the pagoda pressed down on him hard as dazzling Seven colored rays of light beamed from it.
Su Mo’s attack crashed down on Wu Qiong unstoppably, leaving no room for him to breathe. He had to attack Su Mo with an even faster attack.
The instant Wu Qiong’s body touched the Seven colored rays of light, the protective array of Dark Force around him immediately started to boil as though icy cold water had came into contact with boiling water.
“What?” Wu Qiong exclaimed in shock as his face fell. He was about to try to escape when an invisible force that felt like a million large mountains swept out from the pagoda and covered him, preventing him from moving an inch.
“Get lost!” Wu Qiong roared out loud as he punched the Seven-colored Glazed Pagoda heavily.
Bright Fist Radiance escaped his fist and struck against the pagoda with a loud bang. This caused the pagoda to shake violently, but not release its vice-like grip on him.
Without being able to use the Blood Cloud, Wu Qiong could not display his maximum strength and he was powerless against the Upper Sacred Weapon.
“It has ended!” Su Mo raised the sword again as bright, chaotic Sword Qi pierced Wu Qiong’s head in the blink of an eye.
“No!” A desperate scream escaped Wu Qiong’s mouth as his heart leaped in fright. Deathly dark light closed down on his heart and he wanted to break his jade pendant to escape but it was too late.
In the next moment, the Sword Qi pierced straight into Wu Qiong’s head, causing his head to burst open to become a mess of bloody mist in the sky.
Su Mo’s face remained icy cold. After killing Wu Qiong, he continued to devour his corpse.
Outside the Blood Cloud, all the 4 godly geniuses who had heard Wu Qiong’s desperate screams were shocked.
They were clueless as to what had happened inside the Blood Cloud, but Wu Qiong must have met some calamity or he wouldn’t scream like that.
That made the four people surprised and bewildered. Were Su Mo’s powers really that exceptional? Did he really crush Wu Qiong, even when he was within the Blood Cloud?
Very quickly, Wu Qiong’s screams vanished and it seemed like peace fell over the Blood Cloud.
In front of the 4 pairs of eyes, the Blood Cloud rapidly turned smaller and smaller.
3 breaths of time passed and the few dozen meters wide Blood Cloud had shrunk to a size about a few feet wide.
Su Mo’s domineering figure emerged from within the Blood Cloud as it was sucked into Su Mo’s body and disappeared without a trace.
He hovered in mid-air before the few hundred Natal Spiritual Swords shot towards him and surrounded his body.
The 4 godly talents were dumbstruck. Wu Qiong had lost? Had he been killed by Su Mo? Or did he manage to teleport out of the small world?
How could that be?
How could Su Mo defeat Wu Qiong when he was 2 cultivation ranks lower than the latter, and within the Blood Cloud as well?
Even if they were all godly talents and had witnessed all sorts of unbelievable events, they couldn’t help being utterly shocked by what they saw.
At that point, not only were the 4 godly talents shocked, the few hundred thousand spectators above Lake Guang were gaping, their mouths wide open.
“What? Did I see wrongly?”
“Su Mo won?”
“What happened to Wu Qiong? Did he come out? Could he have been killed by Su Mo?”
“How could that be?”
“It was too fast. Did Su Mo really kill Wu Qiong?”
A mess of voices erupted among the crowd and deafened ears. Chaos swept through Lake Guang as though a volcano had erupted. All the spectators were in disbelief and shock at what happened.
This outcome was simply too shocking. Su Mo had killed the top talent Wu Qiong in a few breaths of time within the Blood Cloud even though he was 2 cultivation ranks lower.
No one had imagined that that would happen and shock erupted from the crowd.
Everyone, including Xu Wushen, the king, Elder Jia Shen and Jiang Shenye were taken aback and in disbelief.
